for those who read this.
0x23marco.
The server "graylog.example.org" will not resolve, and syslog-ng will balk when it attempts to set up the forwarding to a non-existent IP address. Set it to a hostname that you are certain will resolve and will not change frequently.

Regarding the syslog-ng configuration I experienced an error not sure how to resolve.
Restart syslog-ng throws an exception: "Starting syslog servicessyntax error at X" that's this syslog("graylog.example.org" port(514));

Any hints where the syntax error is?
thanks

Just to mention that currently only legacy rsyslog syntax is documented,
the more modern approach would be:

action(type="omfwd" target="127.0.0.1" port="10514" template="RSYSLOG_SyslogProtocol23Format")
